A snowsuit is probably the last thing on your mind at the moment if you have a little one under three, but believe us when we tell you, good ones are not easy to find (I can actually just about remember that far back, and Tabarlow’s were from Boden and I loved them, but it was slim pickings for sure). But we have scoured the High Street to find cosiest, cutest ones out there (and trust us, we have left no stone unturned). Here are a few more that we liked too… This one from John Lewis; this one from Gap; this one from La Redoute; and this one from La Redoute (in grey).
Petit Bateau Unisex Baby Snowsuit With Mittens (1-36 months)
Happy New Year! Ok, so today might be a beautiful sunny one, but there are still going to be chilly days to come when we need to wrap up. I’m loving this pale grey snowsuit. A great option if you’re pregnant (or know someone who is) because of the neutral colour. Would make a great (super-stylish) present for a newborn. And a bargain too.

Autograph Quilted Snowsuit (3-24 months)
This snowsuit really reminded me of a Bonpoint one (in a gorgeous dusky pink) that I had for Tabitha. Now I’m not normally a fan of purple (in fact, it’s probably one of my least favourite colours), but this isn’t really ‘purple’ purple. It’s ‘expensive’ purple. Or ‘thistle’? Or ‘aubergine’ (just kidding). Definitely not purple anyway (sorry M&S website, but it’s just not). It stood out to me because it’s not sickly pink, navy or grey, which seem to be the most common snowsuit colours. Maybe I’m not explaining this particularly well, but something just drew me to it, and I can’t quite put my finger on what it was. I just think it looks rather French and stylish, and a little bit different. And I think when it comes to snowsuits, you can afford to perhaps go for a colour that’s a little off-piste (sorry – couldn’t resist) from your usual choices. Love the quilting and the star print lining too. All in all, a rather chic little ensemble. And a fantastic bargain too.

Vertbaudet Newborn Convertible All-In-One (0-18 months)
Verbaudet is a really great French kids brand that I first heard about through another fellow twins mum, Emma. They do really lovely, affordable things. I love French children’s clothes, but they can be on the expensive side. Vertbaudet is a brilliant high-street alternative. This all-in-one is just gorgeous. Perfect for a Winter baby. Love that it’s grey – super-stylish. Loving the hugely practical design – so clever. It would also make a fantastic baby present if you don’t know the sex of the baby. My sister is having her baby any day now, so one might be coming her way…

Next quilted snowsuit (3 months-6 years)
I’m sure I wasn’t the only mum who wasn’t on standby with a cosy snowsuit (or two) on Saturday? So I panicked and went online! With the stores full of Spring/Summer clothes already, there wasn’t a huge amount of choice. I shopped around, but found this one from Next to be the best for design and price. Love that it’s navy and not a bright colour (trust me, it looks much nicer in the flesh). Tabarlow will prob not wear them that much, so definitely didn’t want to spend a fortune. They will be perfect to see them through this cold snap. Plus Next do next day delivery, which was a big bonus.
